Canvases Papers Sketchbooks


My painting combines figuration and abstraction. Papers and canvases  are designed  from picturial objects, often things, but also landscapes, figures, inscriptions, etc. These realities are like a pretext to the exercise of painting, of composition. What matters is the space of the canvas or the paper . My painting does not aim to erase the realities; but it's a world in itself.

Drawings, canvases and papers can be organised according to four domains, Animality/Humanity, Thing/Nothing, Fruit/Flower/ City/Landscape. These sets represent the parts of reality I use to the exercise of pictorial composition.

For some time now, canvases and papers, whatever their domain of registration, are realized, not only as separate units, but as elements of Wholes.
